Dwayne Johnson's Mother Hit By Drunk Driver in Head-On Collision

Actor is "grateful" there were no fatalities in crash.

Published August 11, 2014

Dwayne Johnson's mother and cousin were involved in a car crash that left their SUV completely totalled, TMZ reports. The Hercules star's family was hit by a drunk driver in a head-on collision, but thankfully walked away with their lives. 

The actor says he is grateful for his family's safety after posting a photo of the horrific crash to Instagram. "First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them," he posted. "But then you realize the most important thing is my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days."

It's not clear whether Johnson's mother Ata Maivia-Johnson or his cousin Lina Fanene were injured as a result of the crash. The actor told his fans to "hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them."

Johnson lost his close friend and Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker to a deadly car crash last year.
